You don’t need to own a home with a huge yard to grow your own food and flowers! I rented apartments for years and always had the stairway to our unit lined with pots full of blooming plants and a few wine barrels filled with flowers along the driveway. The neighbors shared in the bounty and no one minded my obsession.
My daughter, with her husband and two tiny daughters, lives in a rented, 106 year old home, in an historic neighborhood with a large yard but no landscaping at all. What she’s doing with it shows you can grown your own food no matter where you live.
A big Pinterest fan , she found some great ideas online and, unlike most of us, she actually went out and built what she saw! I’m so happy she loves gardening and is teaching her daughters to “grow their own”!
While you probably don’t want to put precious plants into the ground in a rented home or to spend tons of money on permanent fixtures you can’t take with you when you move, clearly there are some good ideas out there to spruce things up and make your garden enjoyable on a budget!
Have you found any good ideas for gardening in a rented space? Please share!
